Our Servant Leaders

Our church leaders are passionate about mission within our church and work hard to ensure we are serving God in accordance with our purpose.

Rev. Mark Greenlees | Minister of the Word

Mark has been in ministry in one form or another for over 30 years - first as a youth worker, then in running a Christian bookstore and then, when there was no where left to run, in ordained ministry.

In between those experiences he worked in the automotive industry and as one of the first employed high school SRE teachers.

Mark has been married to Robyn for 37 years, and together they have a history of planting new congregations and new expressions of God's community, and continue to have a desire to see the church renewed and revitalised to be the mission force God longs for us to be.

Mark and Robyn have three adult children, one adult son-in-law, a brand-new daughter-in-law, and four beautiful grandchildren.

"For us ministry and mission is a privileged calling. We usually receive far more from those we are blessed to work alongside than anything we might possibly give."

At the very heart of Mark's ministry is a desire to see healthy, vibrant, Christ-centred local churches gathering in as many ways, places and times as possible. The church is called to be an irresistible presence, always seeking ways to bring life and health into our communities.

Scott Thomson | Youth Pastor

Scott grew up in Dapto and started attending Albion Park Uniting Church youth group at the start of high school. He attended Ceders Christian school and began attending youth group and the church evening service. During this time his faith and passion in Christ grew.

At the end of year 10 he started an apprenticeship with the local nursery to study horticulture and later landscape design. This led to him running the landscape side of the nursery where he loved being outside and witnessing God's creation everyday. After 10 years there and knowing that his heart and calling was in ministry which he was doing on the side, Scott dropped his hours to seek full time youth work. After helping in high school scripture and running the youth group, God's timing came in and Scott started working as a Youth Pastor where he is able to put all his time and effort into what God has called him to do.

In 2008 he married his wife Angela who he met at youth group at the age of 17 and has a beautiful daughter, Chloe, and son, Max.

Scott enjoys surfing, camping, bush walking, and anything outdoors.

His passion is seeing lives transformed through Christs Love and Youth becoming all they were created for.
